Subject: Awesome, soft, clear, warm AUD
Subject: Super Scarlett Fire / Jerry CRUSHES The Other One
The final Fire solo is bliss, like the whole song existed before it just to launch Jerry.
Weir's freewheeling style is crystal clear here and complements the rest of the band the way I liked them.
The Other One. Cap'n DD is right...they crush it around the 6:40 mark.
Subject: Any photos/stories/information about this show?
Subject: SMOKE !!! SHRED !!!
I got dropped off in front of Uni dome to get seats.
It was COLD some kind girls lent me a plastic garbage bag to sit in and we all huddled together.
My friends came back and said the Dead were staying at same motel as ours. 1st the Dead asked who was local, A few hand claps then who was from some place else the place exploded and so did the Dead. I recoded this show 5 rows back with a 1,000 dollar sony deck and 2 AKG mics. I then put on an Akai reel to reel and handed out as many cassettes of 2nd set as I could. Scar - fire was amazing Trucking - otherone mind blowing. Ate breakfast with Jerry the next morning, talked for 1/2 hour or so.
Subject: Best I've Heard
Subject: I have not heard a better Scarlet > Fire.
I've spent months searching this archive.
I have not heard a better Scarlet > Fire.
Buy Dick's Picks v. 18 for the crispiest version.
1 year UPDATE: I found a better Scarlet > Fire. It's called 4/24/78. Anyway this one is still a 5 star mindblower, but get that one too.
3 year review Update: this scarlet fire still smokes, and my trifecta of top s>f's now includes 2/3/79. But I now appreciate this one's scorching, heavy-metal style Other One, ridiculously aggressive and long Samson, and jammed-out, over-the-top Round&Round. Get this show however you can!
(nice bracket in time from the previous posts.)
Good ol' Cedar Falls. Never realized they played in the Dome, Been to many school football games there and it was mindblowing when i found this show. To think such a masterpiece was created a few blocks away!
Subject: Love Light
How did Jerry do it? A beam reflected from a spotlight on his guitar seemed to spread its blessings across every individual in the audience. For "Truckin'" another spot illuminated the semi pulled up next to the stage, and it was all I could do to resist that roadie fantasy of mine.

Subject: set #2
Subject: Even better Scarlet Fire
Subject: Deal ?
Subject: Around and Around!!!
Wish we had the first set.
Subject: Other One indeed
Subject: Peaky - thats a great way to put this
Check out the cool progression that Jer plays around 6:40 in Scarlet - this is more like a stand alone '76 than it is a '78. The fore is really long and drippy No matter what this is a smoker - points off for the crummy quality of this. If this were a board I would say one of the best of the year for sure.
Chicago may be better than this other one for '78 but arnd 6:50 Jerry is just crushing it....
Like the truckin>other no drums.... this is a great show.
